    Better screen resolution and double the flash memory are definite pluses. Too bad they didn't give it GPS capabilities. I love the full QWERTY on my 8330 Curve but started out on the 8130 Pearl.

    This new 8220 will be a really awesome 1st BB for those just venturing into the smartphone world and those who prefer the flip-phone style. Another one I can't wait to go to the store and fondle when it comes out

    I think it will be good for anyone who loves Blackberries.

    I am personally excited about it, and I already gave my brother my 8100, my mom will now have my 8320, and I will have the 8220.

    The touch screen looks disappointing.

    I think he was referring to the video of the "Ninja" and his BB Storm/Thunder.

    The more I look at this flip phone, I am starting to like it. I have T-Mobile, and due for a upgrade! But pondering if I should really wait for the Javelin??????

    SO many choices!!!!!

    I loved flip phones for years so this would be an easy option for me. I also am a diehard ST user so this looks mighty tasty.

    Yeah, I was talking about that video, which made the Storm/Thunder look WEAK!

    I also have an upgrade, and ready to use it.

    I don't like the Pearl, but I sure like that flip.
    T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2 & I'm not coming back! :D

    Some people made similar comments when we evolved from track-wheel to track-ball- but I totally hear ya.

    RIM would be ridiculous to make the wide wide Curve into a flip.

    The external screen capabilities and the tilt-on-side for wide screen seem cool-silly turning a flip phone on its side- but cool result nonetheless. And the lack of GPS sucks chicken arse - but if I weren't such a BB Thunder desperado - I would be able to see my logical progression from Nextel 7520- to tmobile 8100- to sprint and now Verizon 8130 - to 8220




    PS I really really really can't fathom why RIM made the 8350 the Nextel curve- that iDEN service is practically a an exctinction waiting to happen- better off saving the whales !

    Kudos BamaFan!

    Great Plan, spread BlackBerry love throughout your family & get your favorite in the process! It just doesn't get any better!
